Eric “Bird” Huffman from Bird’s Surf Shed checks out my Alpha Omega Bonzer Twin with shaper Malcolm Campbell.
Eric “Bird” Huffman’s new project is the incredible Bird’s Surf Shed. A restored Quonset hut filled with his impressive collection of historically significant surfboards. The highly entertaining television show American Pickers paid him a visit (about the 16 minute mark).
*Bird has been a big supporter of Surfy Surfy and we can’t thank him enough
On our shop opening night, in the middle of all the chaos, Eric “Bird” Huffman and his family walked in with this authentic Caster surfboard and presented it to me as a good luck gift. Needless to say I was overwhelmed. Billy Caster was my Dad’s best friend when I little kid and his influence on me has stuck with me my whole life. I own the last skateboard Caster ever made, but I have never owned one of his surfboards. I am so stoked I don’t even know what to say.
Bird has been a staple at the iconic surf shop in Pacific Beach, South Coast/Windnsea. He is also a great resource when it comes to surfing history and vintage boards.
